Kingsgate Hotel Dunedin
Comfortable and warm room, great service
Very comfortable room and bed. excellent dinner in the restaurant but breakfast was only average. Friendly and helpful staff but hotel is starting to look a bit "tired". Free WiFi ran out very quickly and parking area is a bit awkward. Hotel is centrally located and not too noisy.

Excellent hotel
Nice breakfast, car parking a bit tight, central but on a hill. Nice staff. I would definitely stay there again if I returned to Dunedin.

Let down by the little details
Friendly and efficient check-in. First impressions of the room were positive, reasonably spacious and comfortable. The wall heater quickly warmed the room up. As seems to be the norm in hotels today, there was no central light in the room, making reading difficult unless sitting on the bed or at the desk/table. Hairs in the washbasin and long blonde hairs on the chairs, a dirty mug and only one wine glass in a room for two detracted from the favourable initial impression. The walls were very thin, we could easily hear next door snoring during the night (and talking in their room and on their balcony in the morning), noise from traffic and people in the street was intrusive during the night. Free parking was a bonus. WiFi was also free but limited to 2GB and very slow. Breakfast in the restaurant was very good, service was excellent - Ashleigh was aware from my online booking that I have the coeliac condition, gluten free bread/toast and cereal were available and all of the hot food was gluten free. Although the restaurant was full and some guests were being put in the "overflow" bar, both Ashleigh and David were helpful, friendly and efficient, nothing was too much trouble.

Sound insulation between rooms is not great. Other than that very comfortable. Convenient location.
